Microsoft Project Server Review

The centralization of all projects baselines in Project Server gave us control over the process.

What is most valuable?

  • Ease of use.
  • Adaptability.
  • Stability.

How has it helped my organization?

  • The centralization of all projects baselines in Project Server gave us control over the process. Additionally, we unified the information into just one source to report indicators, progress, milestones, and much more.
  • Microsoft Project Server gave us an easy way to list and classify our projects, creating great views for a high quantity of information with the Project Web Application.
  • We can now define our own project indicators and performance KPI’s, according to our project process. During the last 4 years we have used Project Server to save more than 400 baselines.
